Abstract

Video Chat allows subscribers with cell phone the capability to send Voice, Data, Graphical and Video images to an individual or a selected group, where they can receive and view these signals on a TV channel. The concept is to make a gateway that enables the sending of voice, data, graphical, and video messages via cell phone to an individual and/or a selected group where it can be displayed on a TV monitor. The process utilizes both the cell phone network and the Cable Access Television (CATV) network infrastructures. It requires translation of the cell phone signals to CATV signals.
